Residency & Fellowship Programs

UAB has a seven-year neurosurgical resident education program, dedicated to the clinical, surgical and professional development of our residents. We also offer fellowships for advanced neurosurgical training. 

Medical Students

Medical students are encouraged to rotate through our neurosurgical service to gain an appreciation of the wide variety of acute and chronic neurological diseases. We welcome medical students from other institutions to experience neurosurgery at UAB. For those interested in applying for a residency position, a 1 month “acting internship” is strongly encouraged.

Continuing Education

The conference program at UAB reflects the commitment of the faculty to excellence in education. In addition to daily morning reports, a broad variety of conferences are offered.

Every fall, the department conducts its annual J. Garber Galbraith Symposium. This two-day program highlights research presentations summarizing ongoing investigational efforts within the department. Both clinical and basic scientific presentations are conducted by residents and faculty.
